Ep. 46 The Education of Cyrus, Book V

Shilo Brooks returns for the next podcast in our series on Xenophon’s Education of Cyrus.  We talk about Book V, the love book — easy now — and especially about the differences between sexual and political love.  Cyrus’ special friend returns, as does his boyfriend, and the Susan woman.  And the book ends with another kiss!  We also learn the secret of when Cyrus, and Xenophon, use names.
